Do You Know Who the Artist Is?

Technicolor Time Machine cover

 

A while ago we got an e-mail asking who the cover artist is for the New English Library edition of The Technicolor Time Machine published in 1970 (see image above). The artist isn’t credited on the cover.

Anyone know who it might be?   If anyone identifies the artist, I’ll send them a copy of TTM signed by HH (a newer edition than this one).

    Judging by the art style, I’d say either Alan Gutierrez or Josh Kirby. I’ve provided links to their sites below.
